A Common Myth About Concussions
We commonly associate concussions to sports, but in reality… any injury that shakes or rattles the brain can be harmful. You may be thinking, “I don’t play football, soccer or hockey.” However, bumping your head on a hard surface or even a car accident can be enough to cause damage to the brain.
The first 7 days after a head injury are critical, and some patients only show symptoms 48 hours after the injury. Get help as soon as possible.
Common concussions symptoms include:
Inability to Concentrate
What is a
A concussion is a blow to the head that can occur with or without losing consciousness.
In the past it was believed that the symptoms were transient, but we now know that this is not always the case. Patients can suffer from long-term fatigue, light and sound sensitivity, brain fog, headaches, and problems with concentration, memory, balance and coordination.
Post-concussion syndrome affects 10-20% of concussion sufferers. There are several factors that cause post-concussion syndrome; one of them being an unresolved neck injury.
These complex cases require a co-managed approach and require more time to resolve. Since this is an invisible injury, many times patients do not take the time to rest their brain to fully recover. Get help right away.
